Pittaka (पित्तक) is a Sanskrit word referring to a classification of human constitution (prakṛti) where Pitta-doṣa has its dominance. The word is used throughout Ayurvedic (India medicine) literature such as the Caraka-saṃhitā and the Suśruta-saṃhitā. A skilled physician should monitor the constitution of a patient during treatment with medicines and prescribing his diet. Pitta represents the “fire element” element of the human body.Source: Google Books: Essentials of Ayurveda
